Subject: Decent
Hearing the theme song to the inadvertently funny 1936 movie serial Undersea Kingdom at the outset didn't bode well for this romantic comedy. It has been used in another, quite forgettable movie here at IA. However, this movie is paced fast, there's some good banter between the leads, and the acting and directing are decent. Still, the comedy fell flat a little early on, and the subplot involving gangsters begged credulity in the second act. If you want to kill an hour, you're set with this.

I downloaded the 387MB AVI file. The video was missing frames here and there that didn't affect dialog. It was a bit washed out, too, but was otherwise OK. The audio had hiss throughout, but I didn't notice it after a while.

Subject: The fourth estate on a tear
A rollicking battle between the editorial and circulation departments of a big city newspaper, the Daily News, which in turn is in a circulation war with its rival, the Post. (Present-day New Yorkers should get a kick out of this.) Then gangsters are tossed into the hurly-burley mix. The plot trips over itself a few times, but the action is so fast and furious you probably won't care. Good performances by its stars Ray Walker, Evalyn Knapp and Regis Toomey, who are supported by a large cast which includes un-credited appearances by Billy Gilbert and Fred "Snowflake" Toones.

Good second-feature production values. Crisp direction doesn't let the action lag, except for a bit toward the end. Typical '30s entertainment - lightweight, fast paced and fun. (a.k.a. "Lady Reporter")

This 53 minute print is complete, though it is a second-release edit of the 57 minute original. Soft but otherwise good image quality. The sound is okay.

CAST NOTE: Between 1933 and 1965 Ray Walker appeared in 260 film and TV productions. During the '30s he often played obnoxious heroes who somehow triumph in the end. A character type which was mostly out of favor by 1940. As a result Walker's career suffered, and he was reduced to playing supporting roles. He is here at IA in "City Limits" and a few others.
